We will begin by picking you up from your accommodation in Fes and depart towards the desert through the amazing landscapes of Morocco via the Middle Atlas Mountains and passing by the beautiful city of Ifrane, the Switzerland of Morocco. Driving to the south, we get to Midelt to relax and have lunch in the town. In the afternoon, we will continue our way towards Merzouga Desert passing through the panoramic views of Ziz Valley and its gorges with stops to enjoy some memorable photographic shots along the way. After that, we continue the road until we reach the golden dunes of Erg Chebbi (Merzouga), and spend the night at the Hotel.
In the morning, we will begin our trip with a drive to Khamlia village lived by black skinned people originally from Mali to enjoy some Gnawa music. Afterwards, we will drive through an off-road to visit a nomad family and discover their lifestyle. Then, we continue our way until we reach a shade of a typical “Acacia tree” to have lunch which will last for one hour and a half. In the afternoon, we will head back to the Hotel to have a cup of minty tea and relax to get ready for the camel ride to the camp in the heart of the desert, that will take around 1h: 30min enjoying the beauty of the dunes and attending an incredibly memorable sunset in one of the highest sand dunes in the desert for a high satisfaction and doing some sand boarding. After the dinner is served, you will enjoy some amazing Berber music with different dances under a starry sky. Night in Berber nomad tents.
We will make sure to wake you up early in order to watch the spectacular view of sunrise from the top of the dunes. Once again you will have the chance to enjoy the camel trek back to your Hotel. After taking a shower, you will be served a special Moroccan breakfast. We leave for Rissani and visit the big souk where locals gather for trading all kinds of crafts, food and animals, then Erfoud with a stop to visit a local fossil craft workshop. We continue our way back to Fez crossing the Ziz Valley with its panoramic sceneries of palm groves and gorges, and passing by Medilt to arrive in Azrou where we will stop for lunch and enjoy playing with monkeys on the Cedar Forests. We continue the way to reach our destination in Fes the cultural capital of Morocco. Here we make sure you reach your accommodation in Fes.
End of your trip.
